The international part-time program Master of Arts (M.A.) Olympic Studies, is a fully validated Master degree programme that implements a high-level, interdisciplinary curriculum in Olympic Studies. The programme aims at fostering the links between the academic and the Olympic world. The Olympic Studies Centre of the German Sport University Cologne (OSC Cologne) is the main operational institution of the program and is responsible for all of the course’s organizational and overall academic elements. Professor Dr. Stephan Wassong, Director of the OSC Cologne, is the Programme Leader of the M.A. Olympic Studies and a member of the IOC’s Olympic Education Commission. In the delivery of the teaching modules, the OSC Cologne cooperates with several Olympic Studies Centres worldwide, such as the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern (Germany), Loughborough University (United Kingdom) and the Autonomous University of Barcelona (Spain). Moreover, other highly qualified professors from international academic institutions with long and proven experience in the field of Olympic Studies such as the International Olympic Academy (IOA) (Greece) and the New Zealand Centre for Olympic Studies at the University of Canterbury (New Zealand) teach on the programme. Usually, the seminar weeks take place at the German Sport University Cologne but it is aimed to include other teaching locations as well. The MA Olympic Studies has the official support of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The central intentions of the programme are: To enable knowledge transfer between the academic and the Olympic world in each participant´s working environment; To enhance the individual participant’s Olympic knowledge in social sciences and humanities; To promote the individual participant’s critical appreciation of the ethical and educational dimensions of the Olympic values in the fields of education, economy, governance and politics in sport; To foster critical dialogue on processes of continuity and transformation in the Olympic Movement and on the relationship between Olympism and Olympic practices in wider social and professional contexts; To develop the individual participant’s capacity to conduct research projects of practical relevance to the Olympic Movement. Objectives It is the target to reach the objectives of the programme through teaching interdisciplinary contents about diverse aspects of the Olympic Movement. The topics include, but are not restricted to Olympic history, commercialization, professionalization, politicization, internationalization and administration. It is the nature of the M.A. Olympic Studies that all these topics are substantially linked with sport ethical and educational considerations. This is important for a modern application and legitimization of the Olympic Movement and meets important aspects of the Olympic Agenda 2020. The learning outcomes are to expand the participant’s critical knowledge base as it relates to the modern Olympic Movement. A more detailed, interdisciplinary understanding of the Olympic world, including its issues and challenges, would also foster the identification of the participant with the Olympic Movement but it is also a benefit for the employing organisation/company and its profile to support the development of the Olympic Movement. Entry Requirements The participants are required to hold a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent. Participants must have at least two years of work experience in an environment relevant to the interests of the Olympic family, including the administration of the IOC, National Olympic Committees, Organising Committees of the Olympic Games, Olympic museums, TOP-sponsors, International Federations, universities, sport academies as well as media and broadcasting companies. The part-time nature of the programme with five on-site modules spread over a period of two years enables participants to stay in their professional jobs during the time of their participation in the M.A. Olympic Studies. It is also necessary to prove sufficient English language skills. A formal application process will be required to join the programme. Applicants have to fill in and submit an application form, which can be requested on demand. The screening of application files as well as the selection process will be the responsibility of the OSC Cologne and the Programme Management of the M.A. Olympic Studies. Fees The fee for the two year study programme is 5.000€, excluding flights and costs for accommodation. Payments can be made for the full sum or can be split into parts of 2.500€ for each study year. Candidates can apply for scholarships to cover the study fees through the Olympic Solidarity Commission of the IOC. Applications for Olympic Solidarity support have to be made via the candidates´ respective National Olympic Committee. The National Olympic Committees have to put forward the application to Olympic Solidarity. Since its first intake in 2010, the academic reputation of the programme has developed increasingly on the international level. Evidence for this is the map with the geographical distribution of the participants of the first five intakes. [-]

MA in Cultural Diplomacy and International Sport/Music/Events

Institute for Cultural Diplomacy (ICD) - The Center for Cultural Diplomacy Studies
Campus Full time 12  September 2017 Germany Berlin United Kingdom Scotland + 2 more

The MA degrees in Cultural Diplomacy and International Sport/Music/Events are one year programs offered by the University of West of Scotland (UWS) in partnership with the Academy for Cultural Diplomacy [+]

One Year MA Program in International Music & Cultural Diplomacy One Year MA Program in International Sport & Cultural Diplomacy One Year MA Program in International Events & Cultural Diplomacy The Degree Programs are offered by the University of West of Scotland (UWS) in partnership with the Academy for Cultural Diplomacy About The MA Degree in in International Music & Cultural Diplomacy The opportunity exists to create a programme to educate professionals who intend to become involved in international diplomatic relations which function using the “soft power” of music. These individuals may be involved in planning and co-coordinating the staging of international live events (International music festivals, opening ceremonies for international sports events), recording or broadcast of international music projects (War Child charity, Eurovision Song Contest) or managing long-running cross-border / cross-cultural initiatives (Nerve Centre in Derry, British Council music events). These projects often work across boundaries where trade and political diplomacy have failed, hence retaining communication channels and inter-cultural connections. The emerging professional requires not just an understanding of music and diplomacy but also entrepreneurship, the global music industries, social media communication and distribution platforms, project management, negotiation skills, language skills and team management abilities. In addition to this they may find themselves working with local and national governments. They should therefore also be able to communicate clearly and effectively and understand the language of policy and exchange. The work may be focused on raising national prestige on a global stage, social re-generation, multi-culturalism or cultural liaison (or all of these). Projects are likely to require international music project management, enhanced communication (verbal and digital) skills and an understanding of global creative communities. The program provides students with expertise in the field of International Music and Cultural Diplomacy, a new and attractive field of studies, which is currently offered as an academic field only through the Center for Cultural Diplomacy Studies of the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy. This particular emphasis on Cultural Diplomacy and its historical and contemporary application in the public sector, private sector and civil society, provides students with expertise in three distinct academic fields, thus with an academic and practical advantage in the European and Global Arena. Further information about the program is found under: http://www.ccds-berlin.de/index.php?en_uws_macd-im About The MA Degree in in International Sport & Cultural Diplomacy Sport has come to occupy a central role in the economic, physical, psychological and socio-cultural fabric of nation states. Historical and cultural identity cannot be reflected, understood or critiqued without recourse to the place and influence of sport. Importantly, and despite the rhetoric of politicians and governing bodies, sport is a powerful political vehicle. As a driver of economic wealth, tourist attraction, business development and urban regeneration sport is a major plinth in the policy process. Moreover, in a techno-cultural age of digital and social immediacy, sport has become a key media and experiential spectacular, constantly deployed across the geo-political stage. Modern sport is now a global power player intrinsic to the perpetuation of the spectacle of consumer capitalism, which solidifies its status as a primary vehicle of cultural diplomacy. Sport, sport events and the media are, more than ever, intrinsically linked. The role of sport as a vehicle for peace and development are increasingly promoted by governing bodies of sport and ambassadors for developing nations. Again cultural diplomacy comes to the forefront with sport as we see governing bodies of sporting events, policy institutions and transnational corporations assert counter-discourses that see sport claimed as a supranational values vehicle for peace, human rights and equality. Whether in the bidding phase, lead up, mediatized event or post-event legacy and leverage claims sporting events bring geopolitical differences to the fore. This MA blends expertise in sport with that of cultural diplomacy to ensure the sporting leaders or diplomats of the future are prepared to deal with the global sporting arena and its potential political, social and cultural outcomes.. The program provides students with expertise in the field of International Sport and Cultural Diplomacy, a new and attractive field of studies, which is currently offered as an academic field only through the Center for Cultural Diplomacy Studies of the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy. This particular emphasis on Cultural Diplomacy and its historical and contemporary application in the public sector, private sector and civil society, provides students with expertise in three distinct academic fields, thus with an academic and practical advantage in the European and Global Arena. Further information about the program is found under: http://www.ccds-berlin.de/index.php?ma-program-in-cultural-diplomacy-and-international-sport-one-year-program About The MA Degree in in International Events & Cultural Diplomacy The programme recognises that International events are increasingly important within a globalizing world, reflecting the increasing levels of interconnectedness and levels of social consciousness of the world as a single place Mega sporting and cultural events also have an increased political saliency to a wide variety of governmental and non-governmental actors across the world. In this sense, contemporary sporting and cultural events are significant elements of a globalised politic, ‘influencing and being influenced by politics and foreign policy’. International events are therefore inseparable from politics, international relations and diplomacy (public or cultural). They are also now accepted as an important element in nations’ soft power offensives, to the point that securing a positive impact on the nation’s image (or brand) or international prestige has moved from being a welcome consequence to a significant justification for investing in hosting sports mega-events. The program provides students with expertise in the field of International Events and Cultural Diplomacy, a new and attractive field of studies, which is currently offered as an academic field only through the Center for Cultural Diplomacy Studies of the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy. This particular emphasis on Cultural Diplomacy and its historical and contemporary application in the public sector, private sector and civil society, provides students with expertise in three distinct academic fields, thus with an academic and practical advantage in the European and Global Arena.
